Acorns & Threads
Stitcher's Timeout

Great stash week!...This has been a wonderful stash week! Sunday was the annual open house at Acorns & Threads, my LNS. There was a gift with purchase, which was a really nice re-usable bag (like the kind you get at the grocery store, but with pockets on the sides). I hadn't been to the store in almost a year because I was trying to pay off my daughter's wedding and stitch from my stash, but I couldn't resist this trip. I was very good too...only bought a few things (although my wish list has grown by leaps and bounds!) I got a few Cross-Eyed Cricket designs...2 to use for my next round robin, and another fall design. Also two designs from Stone & Thread, one of the LHN thread packs ("Reading"), and a pretty mermaid design. Also the JBW little autumn design (the acorn) some Weeks thread and a small piece of gingham fabric.

This week also saw the return of Flat Lynda from the STO retreat, and she brought a wonderful goody bag home with her! Along with the retreat booklet chock full of fun recipes and stuff, was some thread and fabric, and several wonderful patterns...all packed into a huge tote bag...perfect for carting around projects.

I also received the new booklet by Stacy Nash Designs...A Simply Early Christmas. It is wonderful! I can't wait to stitch up some of these beautiful primitive designs.

And I got LHN's "Sea to Shining Sea" and an exclusive ornament design from Theron Traditions for the mayflower Sampler GuildGuild. Also some fabric and threads for the Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler SAL starting in January. The fabric color is bay rum and the threads are Carrie's "Koala Claw" I'm 99% sure that this is what I'll be using!

So, it's been a good week! Sorry the photos aren't very good.


  1. Great stash haul - don't you just love Carrie's Threads?

  2. All is lovely!
    Since tonight is "that" night, Happy Halloween.
    Hope the costumes are ready and not too scary.
    Wish you a good "trick or treat".
    Best regards

  3. Oh, my!!! Look at all the goodies!!! Lovely stash, Hun!!!
    And I do so love the Christmas booklet from Stacy Nash Primitives! :-)

    And I love your fabric and threads for Beatrix Potter's Quaker... I haven't decided on my threads yet... I'll most likely go with Lakeside Linens Vintage Examplar... and as for threads... most likely Autumn coloured silks... I do so love Red Fox from Belle Soie! ;-)
